Curtain up on My Stage: Revisiting a Finger Lakes Childhood
What was it like to grow up on a farm during the Great Depression? As a child who did so, Ms. Zimmer answers that it was a better place than most. Following an introduction to her family and the setting, an historic home in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of New York State, the chapters reveal the skills and resourcefulness that carried the family successfully through those difficult years. The story, told through tales, some humourous, some sad, follows the season as the year rolls around. Lovers of the Finger Lakes Region should find this book of interest, as will senior citizens anywhere.
